Capture of a slave ship...

Item # 683707

October 02, 1839

NATIONAL INTELLIGENCER, Washington, D.C., Oct. 2, 1839 Page 3 has: "Late From Africa" which includes: "The Euphrates is sent here...having been captured on the coast of Africa...as a slaver, and surrendered to Gov. Buchanan..." with further particulars.
Keep in mind that although slavery continued to exist into the Civil War, the importing of slaves was outlawed in 1808.
Four pages, nice condition.
